Signs of Life: Part 17

© 2017 Rex Jaeschke. All rights reserved.

From time to time during my travels, I come across signs that I find interesting for one reason or another. Sometimes, they contain clever writing, are humorous, or remind me of some place or event. Here are some, from Texas and Utah.


A famous highway and a famous TV show.


The woman figure looks like she needs "to go" badly, but will it be safe?


Well, this public service message seems very clear!


Outside a vistor's center on a main highway.

I must say that I was in no great hurry to meet the indiginous wildlife.


I'm guessing there's an interesting story behind the name of this company.


A restaurant in Moab, UT.


I was amused by the pairs of hot peppers used to make the Spanish letter "ll" (yes, this is a single letter). And the claim that research and development were going on inside was encouraging.


All right!


Given that casa is Spanish for house, I thought this a bit clever.


I think the driver was probably handicapped by drink!


Who knew that pagans were into mountaineering!


You mean I can't just drive forward to get out?


With a name as attractive as that, why wouldn't every tourist driving through go to see this Utah state park?

Wikipedia states, "The park is so named because of its use as a natural corral by cowboys in the 19th century, where horses often died of exposure. Dead Horse Point has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names.


Another "must see" place in southeastern Utah.


Just the thing for a polygamist to drink with his wives after a hard day of work on the ranch in Utah!

From the back-side label, "She's on Nitro! Meet the sister-wife of our classic brew. This nitrogenated version is as chocolatey and easy drinkin' as the original but even softer and creamier. It's OK to love them both."

BTW, porter is a dark style of beer.


This from an expansive gated community in Park City, Utah, an area where dinasoars once roamed.

I understand that running your vehicle into a Brontosaurus can ruin your day!
